Well, it's too bad you feel that way. When GIK and I looked at where the site was headed long-term, we were both confident that the status quo wasn't going to work. Whether you agree with the changes or not, (I already know you dont) we felt they were necessary over the long haul. As far as donations, this has absolutely nothing to do with that. We've operated the site for over seven years without making a dime, even though we've had plenty of opportunities to do so. Instead, we founded the site because we're Reds fans and we enjoy the discussions this site offers.

I was in the same position two years ago and I know that simply wasn't the case. If you think there is a group of people voicing their opposition right now, I know from past experience that it was much more vocal two years ago. I don't expect everyone to agree with the decisions we make (is that possible with 2,500+ people?) but to act as if everyone was on board with the changes two years ago simply isn't true.
